Department Statement of Goals / Assessment Process / Assessment Results
Public Safety seeks to provide as safe a campus as possible so as to allow students and faculty to teach, learn and perform research without fear of crime or disturbance. Crime statistics are monitored to assess any change in the amount of crime as well as to determine “hot spots”. Identifying trouble spots allows us to move personnel into the area in order to deter future incidents. The Department seeks to provide through the shuttle service and parking enforcement, the orderly and rapid movement of people throughout the campus. By maximizing the use of existing parking facilities through an efficient transportation system, the University is better able utilize its limited resources to support the academic mission of the University. Parking spaces are inventoried at the beginning of the school year. We then count the available spaces during the peak times. From this we are able to project if additional parking must be provided.
